Walk Like an Egyptian

So this is going to be the weirdest and most will think vain post ever but here goes.  Although these are pictures of what I wore to work, my post today is about my amazing co-worker, Mary, who now lives in Cairo.  Yeah, so the pictures having nothing to do with my post except it's what I wore to work and Mary used to work at my office...

Anyhow, when I moved back home to work at my firm, as soon as I walked through the doors, Mary and I clicked immediately.  We share the same sense of humor, tv shows, everything.  Soon, other co-workers joined our now little family which made going to work enjoyable.  After working together for two years, Mary, was accepted to graduate school in Egypt.  It was such an amazing opportunity but, selfishly, I was sad to see her go.  Thankfully, Mary has been blogging about her experiences as a way to help other students or foreigners looking to visit Egypt.  I've learned so much about Egypt through reading her blog and definitely hope to visit Egypt in my lifetime.

If you're interested, I highly encourage you to check out her blog Mary in Cairo.
